I have experienced some amazing days in my first rotation with the Canberra Dispute Resolution team. It has been both intellectually stimulating and engaging from a professional development perspective.
The diversity of the AGS graduate program was fantastic. It offers a range of training opportunities including internal seminars on legal practice, public events and workshops focusing on career development.
It was great to be able to work in each of AGS’s practice groups, with a focus on government and the national interest There is also a real focus on the year being about learning and growth, rather than strict billable targets.
One of the best things about working in the APS is the flexibility. I have been supported to explore opportunities, so I suppose my other daily practice is to be open to what comes, and be enthusiastic about each and every day!
